Association president Marty Hay said there was a lack of communication with South Dunedin residents about the council's response to last year's floods, which had allowed ‘‘rumour and innuendo'' to spread.
He called on the council to look at ways to improve communication, which could include basing some council staff in South Dunedin as was done in the immediate aftermath of last year's flood.
‘‘They are feeling left out and there are still a lot of people displaced [as a result of the flood].''
Member Nick Orbell said the council needed to look at spending in South Dunedin as an investment rather than a cost.
The council needed to make a ‘‘real commitment'' to a library and community hub in South Dunedin after years of delaying the project.
